Game 2 Roundup
The Cardinals tied up the World Series last night with a come-from-behind victory over the Red Sox. Once again, the best action took place off the field. James Taylor sang the National Anthem but momentarily confused it with America the Beautiful (which he sang during the seventh inning stretch with Boston Marathon bombing victims). Two Cardinals fans performed one of the worst high fives in recent memory while injured Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo just tried to stay warm on a cold Boston night. Joe Buck botched a Pearl Jam promo, calling Animal a new song when its actual debut was one of the greatest performances in VMA History. And of course, Red Sox fans (and even a dog) wore fake beards.
Mississippi State freshman TE Artimas Samuel spent his entire life waiting to play his first college football game, only to see his name spelled as “Sameul.” At least he’s not alone; Here’s a whole gallery of notable misspelled jerseys.
